The Tipping Point host can be heard wincing through pain as he said: “Back on the Compex, back with Mo.

“Trying to get that stimulation in my quad, it really, really hurts.”

Alongside the clip, he penned: “Trying to stimulate the quad – and force the knee to extend straight – Mo likes to hurt me.

“That final degree means I got the leg straight.

In an Instagram post, he penned: “For those who didn’t know I ruptured my ACL and tore my meniscus in my knee playing football.”

Ben then continued: “So they’ve repaired the ACL and the meniscus and now starts the rehab, the very slow, long rehab.”

Elsewhere, Ben returned to Good Morning Britain this week for the first time since his surgery.

Speaking about his recovery, he admitted how his wife was “struggling”.
